Birds add three players

The Eagles have signed three players to “reserve/future” contracts — linebacker Josh Kaddu and wide receiver Will Murphy, both of whom played for Chip Kelly at the University of Oregon, along with wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah.
Reserve/future contracts are for players not on NFL rosters at the end of the season and can be signed before the free-agent season begins. The 2014 free-agency season technically starts March 11.
Kaddu was a fifth-round, 2012 draft choice of the Miami Dolphins. He has played in five NFL games, one in 2013, and does not have a career tackle.
Murphy was a walk-on at Oregon, signed last summer with the Eagles, and made three catches in the preseason before being cut. Later, he joined the Birds’ practice squad.
The 6-foot-7 Momah played at Boston College, then signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent before the 2013 season. He was cut in late in training camp.
Monday, linebacker Emmanuel Acho, defensive end Brandon Blair, tackle Michael Bamiro, tight end Emil Igwenagu, quarterback G.J. Kinne and linebacker Travis Long signed reserve/future contracts with the Birds after having served on their practice squad.
